“We didn’t receive anything. I can show you,” the diplomat said when she was told by the police officer that she was flouting the lockdown order which the MEA has also issued.
“You are not following the lockdown directive given by the honourable PM of India,” the police officer can be seen saying. In reply to that, the diplomat said, “Your honourable PM is very honourable, but we didn’t receive anything at the embassy.”
As a female voice, probably of an accompanying officer, can be heard asking her which embassy she is from, the diplomat says, “Who are you?”
